I am a dual qualified intellectual property solicitor and patent attorney with a specialism in providing strategic, business focused advice in relation to identifying, protecting, commercialising and enforcing intellectual property rights. I am passionate about helping businesses succeed and I advocate the use of intellectual property rights as a key tool in meeting business objectives. I can advise in relation to all intellectual property matters including patents, trade marks, designs, copyright and trade secrets. I also have substantial experience of drafting intellectual property and commercial contracts and negotiating licensing and collaboration deals on behalf of my clients.
Having worked in industry as an engineer for over a decade before re-training, I have a good understanding of most technologies from mechanical engineering to computer software to chemical compounds. I also have experience of advising clients in multiple jurisdictions including the United States, Europe and China.
In my spare time I enjoy cycling when I am not chasing my one year old twins around the house.
